Abstract

A dense concentration of barchan sand dunes in the Kuiseb River delta were examined to ascertain the rate of migration, through the study of aerial photographs taken in 1961 and 1976 and fieldwork in 1988. Wide variations in migration rates were detected as a result of wind conditions, dune height and sand supply. - (AJC)
